Beaches Boscobel Resort and Golf Club, Ocho Rios

beaches boscobelLong a favorite with families (for years this was a SuperClubs property), Boscobel is now part of the Beaches family but still boasts many visitors who have vacationed here for generations. This all-inclusive resort, located 10 miles east of Ocho Rios, provides guests with free ground transfers to and from the airport.

The 224-room property has a variety of activities, all of which are included in the cost of the stay. The resort’s Boutique Spa has four massage rooms, sauna and steamroom, and offers massages, reflexology, facials, aromatherapy, and a full service beauty salon pampering everything from hair to toe. The resort also has a full fitness center, sports like volleyball, basketball, shuffle board, tennis, and the Sandals Golf & Country Club is not far away. Kids can join parents for complimentary golf (Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and children under 10 must tee off after 12 noon). Watersports range from scuba diving and kayaking, to aqua trampolines and glass bottom boat rides. There are four freshwater pools, and a kid’s pool with a waterslide.

Besides the kids pool, there are plenty of activities for the kids to participate in. The Kids Kamp is open daily from 9 am to 10 pm, and breaks the kids up into age groups: infants 0-3, toddlers 4-7, pre-adolescent 8-12, and teens 13 and older. The age groups allow the children participate in fun and games with others in their age group, and make some friends. There is a nursery on-site at an additional charge, and private babysitters can also be hired for a fee.

Kids will also enjoy the Xbox Game Oasis with the latest and greatest games at no charge. Like other resorts in the Beaches chain, this property features the Sesame Street characters in all types of activities and shows.

Also at the resort is a petting zoo that kids of all ages can enjoy. Guests can interact with rabbits, goats, turtles, pigs and chickens, and can watch the birds at the on-property aviary.
